British artist Rayvenn D’Clark is a sculptor whose work explores the collective experience of Blackness and womanhood. Using digital techniques to create moulds of faces, busts and other parts of the human anatomy, D’Clark dissects the lens of colonialism and eroticism through her captivating sculptural forms.
A graduate of Central Saint Martins, Realf Heygate’s photoreal monochromatic paintings depict images of artworks which are then painted on canvas. Simultaneously inquisitive and meditative, Heygate’s nuanced dialogue around form and meaning has seen him exhibited widely as one of London’s most exciting new guard artists.
Claudia Legge’s unique photography eye has seen her included in the Taylor Wessing Portrait exhibition and the Royal Academy’s Summer exhibition to name but a few. Showing here a selection of photographs from Cuba, Legge’s work harnesses colour and composition to dramatic, painterly effect.
Playing with the glitches in 3D printing techniques, Brixton-based James Rogers’ work seeks to explore the interplay between our increasingly hybridized online and offline identities. By mixing both traditional and contemporary processes, his predominantly sculptural work exists along the juncture of past and present, “a mixture of errors, emotions, and images, moving themselves across the digital and physical world.”
“My work does not have any ‘meaning’ although I do want it to be ‘meaningful’… which is a different thing,” says Andrew Hardy of his work. A painter of meditative abstract forms, Hardy’s work is an exploration of its own materiality, inviting the viewer to appreciate its formal qualities without the need to infer meaning or narrative. A celebration of art in its purest form.
